Black Rep Grp. was started in the 1950's by the late Birel & Nora
Vaughn; High School teachers in Vicksburg, Miss. to celebrate the
contributions of Black Artists. Ruby Dee & Ossie Davis named them
the "Keepers of the Culture" After three aborted attacks by the KKK one
which almost harmed their baby daughter Mona; they were forced to flee
Mississippi & settle in Berkeley Calif. Thru persistence & hard
work they continued their mission to preserve our culture & founded
what is now the Berkeley Black Rep.
revolutionary vision is kept alive today by that three year old baby
girl that fled Miss. with them years ago their surviving daughter Dr.
Mona Vaughn Scott. I am honored to bring my passion peice back to their
stage. We hope you can support us.
" In my humble attempt to use Art as a vehicle for social change. This
more than just a show for me; it's a prayer for the forsaken &
forgotten. A story of heart & hope, of broken promises & broken
dreams, a love song for the brave & broken-hearted enslaved
Africans, who found enough forgiveness in their tortured souls to live,
laugh & love. To remind us as we're sharing this brief moment in
time on this third Rock from the Sun; to embrace our common humanity
